Through the Philip-Glass

The French company Opéra national du Rhin Ballet will be presenting Alice from Feb. 11-13 (2022) in Mulhouse and Feb. 18-19 in Strasbourg. “With a new score by Philip Glass, a figurehead of American minimalism, choreographers Amir Hosseinpour and Jonathan Lunn reimagine and reinvent Carroll’s fantastical world. Freed from the original narrative, the dancers of the OnR Ballet play a new gallery of contemporary creatures and characters, joined by actor Sunnyi Melles.” More info here.

(As we speak, their blurb contains the unfortunate phrase “Lewis Carroll dreamt up a strange and wonderful world where … silkworms are opium addicts …” and I have written to them about it.)
